I have a need to merge 2 SharePoint lists into a third list. I'm using the copy item command in SharePoint designer. I've also tried the create item command.

Both work well until I get to a lookup field. The lookup field doesn't copy. I tried creating a local variable but that doesn't work either.

I'm using SharePoint Designer 2013 for an Office 365 implementation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I switched to a SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow, I could capture the lookup fields properly.

  • Yes, actually it does answer the question. I wasn't able to see the lookup fields when using a SharePoint Designer 2013 workflow. When I switched to a 2010 workflow it works fine. Sep 28, 2016 at 16:31
